Santa Speedo Run Toronto

Photos of the 2011 Toronto Santa Speedo Run

The annual Toronto Santa Speedo Run raised eyebrows across Yorkville on Saturday as a group of scantily-clad runners hit the streets wearing their best red speedos and not much else (in Boston, it would appear, they're a bit more creative).

The temperature hovered at around -3C, but a nasty wind from the west ensured that the participants had to deal with at least a little discomfort. But it was all for a good cause. This was the run's seventh year in support of the Hospital for Sick Children, over which time it's raised $180,000 for holiday gifts for kids who are confined to the hospital.

Here's what it looked like. Lead photo by dtstuff
